Tutorial: Digital Art Basics and Image Size Terms by Nightlyre Tutorial: Digital Art Basics and Image Size Terms by Nightlyre
I made a tutorial! This one covers some basic terms you might hear when talking about digital artwork: "pixel", "screen resolution", "image dimension", "PPI" (with a note on "DPI"), and "high resolution image" - important things for digital artists to know and understand, I feel.

These are the images I used as examples:

Imagination by Nightlyre Desert Queen by Nightlyre Reptilian Bronze (Clearance Print!) by Nightlyre Ocean's Fury by Nightlyre

Do you know what operating system you're on? (Windows XP, 7, or 8?) If it's Windows 7, just right-click on the desktop and click on "Screen Resolution".

Yeah found it already sorry! :D But i figure out I'm already at the max. And my art is still really grainy. I use Gimp, maybe that's the problem.
